Yes, I know that Jesus is sovereign. Yes, I believe that Jesus is my true King. Yes, I believe that no evil of this world can touch the hope I have.
BUT CAN YOU LET ME, LET US, HAVE A MOMENT TO PROCESS AND LAMENT?
As an Asian woman, I am scared that my country voted for a man who was openly racist, misogynistic, deceptive and impulsive. That this man said “grab her by the pussy”. As an American, I am disappointed, sad, angry, frustrated that millions chose this man. As a person who has ears, I am appalled that we have voted for someone who lies and exaggerates the truth. I cried tonight. I screamed in my car, into the phone, at the world. I am pissed. I feel devastated. I want to lie in bed tomorrow and not get out.
Yeah, I know that justice trumps evils. I believe that love trumps evil. I know that justice prevails. I don’t know when, but I know it’ll happen. I know that God sees this hot mess. I know that God sees what’s up. I know that God has ultimate control.
BUT FOR ONE SECOND, STOP TRIVIALIZING OUR FEELINGS WITH YOUR BLANKET CHRISTIANESE. This is real hurt, real anxiety, real hopelessness, no matter how temporary it is.
